Duo at the double

A TWO-MAN Sonning Common and Peppard A side held on for a vital 5-5 draw at Our Lady

A TWO-MAN Sonning Common and Peppard A side held on for a vital 5-5 draw at Our Lady of Peace B in their bottom-of-the-table Reading and District League Division 1 clash.

Jason Roberts and Gary Morgan both won twice and teamed up to win the crucial doubles set against Djordje Milovanovic and Steve Miller 11-7, 11-8, 13-15, 11-13, 11-5.

In Division 2 the B team kept on course for promotion by beating their C team club mates while at the bottom Alan Mollett denied Kingfisher G a win by beating Richard Leachman in the final set of the night 11-7, 3-11, 11-5, 11-7 to clinch his double alongside that of team mate Mark Jones. Anthony Reeve had earlier gained a win over Leachman for his single, recovering from two games down to win 3-11, 9-11, 11-7, 11-7, 12-10 as the D team dug out a 5-5 draw.

Sonning Common and Peppard F and Milestone B fought out a draw in the battle of the Division 4 basement teams. Nicholas Nowak was the player of the night for Sonning Common, rescuing a point by winning the final set against Zoltan Kelemen.

Rob James hit a hard fought treble that included a 9-11, 15-13, 10-12, 11-1, 12-10 win against Mike Casserely and a similar five game victory over Dave Aust as Tilehurst Methodists D beat the G team 7-3, a result that ends any hopes the G team may have had of finishing in the top two.
